I read an article earlier today about how we should not be accepting transgender, but instead ‘help’ them as it is a ‘mental disorder’.
I, however, do not agree.
The article stated that transgender was a mutation and made no sense/ was not naturally human in other words. However they accepted gay/ lesbian relationships.
Let’s get things straight, none of transgender, gay, lesbian, bio sexual, asexual etc. is problem or thing that needs fixing.
Humans have been around for thousands of years, of course we are going to be different. It is likely almost all of us have mutations of one form or another; in fact mutations that are beneficial or not a problem often become part of who we are as humans. We are a species, and like any other we are developing.
Now I understand that originally the key purpose of human (and most animal) life is to reproduce, and therefore being attracted to the same sex is illogical fitting that theory.
BUT as humans have evolved to be a highly intelligent and thriving race, we no longer have this instinctive need to reproduce, or at least not as strong as perhaps it once was. Therefore it cannot possibly be a problem or issue that needs revolving, as relationships are no longer purely based on the idea of having children. Many couples, opposite sex or same, have no wishes for children at all. And if a same sex couple wants to have children, there are ways they can such as adoption.
Transgender is no different. It may not have made sense when humans first evolved, but in today’s modern society there are many factors that could effect this, and at the end of the day it is their life and their choice, the least we can do is accept it.
Their choices in life are none of our business and as long as they are happy and feel that they belong in their bodies, then that should never be an issue to us or anyone else.
Whether you agree with transgender or other sexual preferences or not, the least you can do is accept other people for who they are; not everyone is the same as you and we are all entitled to our own views.
I hope this made sense and I’d really appreciate any feedback.
